    I don't know about you guys, but I think a grey theme would be great, I did a quick mockup and I would definitely be using it. I don't suppose anyone knows if MS is planning on doing anything new as far as themes go?

    Windows 8 has these options. Given their intent to merge them, I'm sure WP will as well.

    That being said, I don't think it looks good. All black all the way.

    See, I like the black on the home screen, but in certain apps I don't think it looks nice. That's why I use the white theme, which I don't like quite as much with the home screen, but all in all I like better, but at the same time, I worry about it using more battery, I think is both looks good and meets in the middle

    Black makes tiles look like they just float on the screen.

    Nice mockup, OP. Looks cool, I'd try it.

    I like that grey... I would like the ability for a color swatch and picture option

    A color swatch for the tiles is definately needed, only usefull colors i find is cyan on the white theme, and steel on the black, everything else looks too distracting/immature..

    I agree. I'd like to see the way they have it Win8 with the various patterns and colours. I'd also like to see customizable tile colours, since I like to colour coordinate my start screen layout.

    I also prefer the black/dark theme. I think your concept might have looked nicer with the Win8 patterns, but what you have isn't a bad idea.
